Film­maker David Dhawan (left) is im­pressed with how di­rec­tor Ananth Ma­hade­van’s (far left) up­com­ing film has turned out. The film is based on the life of free­dom fighter Gaur Hari Das and Dhawan loved the trailer and called Ma­hade­van to con­grat­u­late him.

“I was pleas­antly sur­prised to see David ji’s name flash on my phone… in his fa­mil­iar warm tone, he went on to tell me how im­pressed he was by the trailer of my film and how the Das’ war seemed so rel­e­vant yet epic. He par­tic­u­larly men­tioned the cuts in the trailer and the classy ap­proach to the theme,” says Ma­hade­van, adding that he was happy to be praised by Dhawan: “It was so flat­ter­ing to get com­pli­ments from an ace editor and di­rec­tor like him.” The film­maker also ex­pressed his de­sire to watch Ma­hade­van’s film. “He said he wanted to watch the film and com­pli­mented me on my growth as a film­maker. His opin­ion was valu­able be­cause it meant the film had crossed over from crit­i­cal ac­claim in fes­ti­vals to com­mer­cial ac­cep­tance,” says Ma­hade­van.
